colocasia stem ukkeri (venti ukkeri)

this is called "ventti" in konkani.all the konkani people in kerala used to make this dish. not only ukkeri, but we make dishes like "ventti baji", "alvathi" etc with this ....
with the kerala red rice it is sooo good and one pappad,,,wow mouth watering....

you need
colocasia stems -5-6
birmi karmbal -8nos [i already mentioned about this]
coconut oil -2tsp
mustard -1tsp
green chillies -5-6
hing powder -little
salt -as required
grated coconut -3tbsp


first remove the outer layer of the stem .you can just peel it off with the knife.cut it into 1"lengthy pieces and slice it.
wash these pieces with water properly.keep it for draining the water.

heat he oil in a kadai.add mustard seeds and slited green chillies. stire for 2minutes, Add the cleaned colocasia stem pieces and chopped birmi karmbal.and cover the kadai and cook it for 20 minutes in a simmer between add the salt and stire. the stem will leave lots of water so need not add any water.when it done sprinkle with hing powder and grated coconut and serve hot with rice.
